  • The Political Changes of Medieval Europe
  • Yes, but what will the church think about this. You know they love power. Also what is the name of this document? 
  • I am the king. I make the rules. This makes more sense also. I also name this Constitutions of Clarendon. 
  • I, King Henry the 2nd declare that everyone of every class is formally accused of  a serious crime. I also replace the ordeal and combat trial with court. Did you get that scribe? 
  • Yes, well I have my reasons. My family needed the money and his carriage happened to be the one we would ransack for money. He tried fighting me so I killed him. 
  • I pledge defendant guilty, take him away.
  • Money!!! Really! My poor Lubert. How could you!!! 
  • Case 023, Madam Louver as plaintiff and Sir Ralph II as defendant. Sir Ralph, did you murder this poor women's husband. No lying to court. 
  • Yes Sir
  • This king is so rude. The people are not going to like this.
  • King John, you have lost more land and the people are disagreeing with your tax amount and fairness. 
  • Here you will learn about 3 kings who changed the political government and left a huge difference in Europe.
  • Yes your majesty, I will send out the orders. 
  • Horrible, Ungrateful people, collect more taxes and for my many enemies find them and kill them. NOW!!!
  • King Henry the 2nd made changes in the government such as replacing the trial of ordeal and combat where either way, you basically die. This was a smart choice.
  • You forgot we have rights. Really!!!
  • You better sign it. 
  • Lets come to an agreement. You sign the Magna Carta ad we are back on your team.
  • Fine, but only if I still get to rule.
  • He also decided to make a royal court for serious cases. This angered the church, because the church was used to having all the power.
  • I, King Edward I declare the governing body, Model Parliament includes you!!! The commoners and lower ranking clergy.
  • King John was a horrible king who taxed his people unfairly and killed his enemies on the spot. He also did not go through fair court, he just threw you in jail without a trial.
  • Angry barons and lords forced him to go to a meadow called Runnymede near river Thames. They wanted their rights back and told him to sign the Magna Carta.
  • King Edward I included the lower class into the government. This gave common people power.
